The Jazz Harbingers is Melbourne's only hardbop band dedicated to Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. Hard bop is a subgenre of jazz that is an extension of bebop (or "bop") music that incorporated influences from blues, rhythm and blues, and gospel music. Hard bop melodies tend to be simpler and more "soulful".

For a night featuring timeless tunes and beloved albums, be sure to catch them at the Paris Cat Jazz Club!

"We've tried to take a fresh approach and will be playing a set of really exciting tunes from some of our favourite Jazz Messenger albums."

"We can't wait to show you what we'll be opening with!"
